I can't solve the "sigsuspend" problem.

My thread progream is running on solarlis 2.8
It uses msgrcv and mutex_lock functiion.
By the way, it is halted by sigsuspend.
I can't find the reason.

when the event is occurred, the process state which is monitored by truss, is as follows.

sigsuspend(0xFFAE6AC8)          (sleeping...)
signotifywait()                 (sleeping...)
lwp_cond_wait(0xFF275548, 0xFF275558, 0xFF26EDB0) (sleeping...)
door_return(0x00000000, 0, 0x00000000, 0) (sleeping...)

please help me!!!

Hi hypark7,

Are you sure you do not have any sigsuspend call in your code ...

if you are sure, then may be mutex_lock or some other function that needs to sleep for an event is calling sigsuspend

hypark7,

please have a look at the output of the pstack command, i.e.

/usr/proc/bin/pstack pid

where pid is the process id of your process.  Which of the threads
executes the sigsuspend?

Usually the signotifywait() mentioned above is executed by the ASLWP
(the Asynchroneous Signals LWP).

Thank's for Sunnycoder & Thomas.

The additional comment is as follows.

I'm sure that I don't have any sigsuspend call in my code, and the "sigsuspend" event happened few and far between.  
I can't find the situation in a test system.

In my case, the deadlock state which is caused by mutex_lock is as follows, and I solved the problem.

lwp_mutex_lock(0xFF0D0000)      (sleeping...)
signotifywait()                 (sleeping...)
lwp_cond_wait(0xFF385548, 0xFF385558, 0xFF37EDB0) (sleeping...)
door_return(0x00000000, 0, 0x00000000, 0) (sleeping...)

or

lwp_sema_wait(0x00072168)       (sleeping...)
signotifywait()                 (sleeping...)
lwp_cond_wait(0xFF2734E8, 0xFF2734F8, 0xFF26CD80) (sleeping...)
door_return(0x00000000, 0, 0x00000000, 0) (sleeping...)

Which kind of function may cause the "sigsuspend" situation?

Moreover, the system is on service.

so, when it happened, I must kill the process and restart it instantly.

please, help me!!

The Lifecycle Approach to Managing Security Policy

Managing application connectivity and security policies can be achieved more effectively when following a framework that automates repeatable processes and ensures that the right activities are performed in the right order.

well, do a pstack before you kill it ;-)

sigsuspend might be called from any library function, even from within
the ASLWP; therefore we need the correct thread stack.

The sigsuspend might also be called from the ASLWP when it calls
one of your signal handlers ... Do you have signal handlers in your
code? If yes, how did you set them up (signal() or sigaction() ?)
What do they do? Do you use any kind of sync primitives inside
the handlers?

Thank's for Thomas.

If the "sigsuspend" event happens, I will do a pstack before I kill it.
But it happened once during 2~3 days within 10 same systems.
I hope to solve the problem by pstack.

I don't have any signal handlers in my code.

I  will give 50% point to you right now, and I will give another 50% point after I solve the problem.

Thanks!!!

I'm sure, hypark7 hasn't forgotten to link -lthread
or -lpthread. Am I right?

Thank's Thomas!!

But, I did link -lthread.

By the way, I deleted the code "usleep" which is located after several mutex fuction(mutex_lock & mutex_unlock) calls.

The "sigsuspend" problem has not happend for about 6 days after delete.

I hope not to happen the "sigsuspend" problem.

I will give all pts to Thomas, Thank's.
